Welcome to our fifth poll of polls in the lead up to the general election on December 12th!

Our first four polls have gone up, and people are letting us know who they are thinking of voting for in this upcoming GE. We're now just under two weeks away from the Election, and new information is coming out every day about what the parties intend to do if they get into power. There have been leaders debates, interviews and lots of discussion around the feasibility of every party's manifesto promises. We've also had some more scandals emerge, with the Conservative's Press Office changing their name to 'FactcheckUK' during the leaders debate, Labour being rocked with more anti-semitism complaints and the Lib Dem's having a difficult time in the polls. Has any of these events or stories had any affect on your voting preferences? Do you think you'll still vote for the party you thought you would now you can see more about what they want to do for the country?

For those of you who haven't seen this before, we're capturing your votes every Thursday (or Friday again... opps ) in the lead up to the election. Our awesome data analyst will be providing us some cool stats so we can see how the vote on TSR is looking, and comparing to the general trends.

Whether you've voted before or not, let us know what you're thinking!

I chose the Green Party in the poll, but I think a stronger vote would be with the Lib Dems, due to tactical voting (unless you live in Brighton of course!).

Voting for any party other than Labour or Conservative will be a meaningless vote, and will result in a party that you dislike, in getting elected.

Only Labour or Conservatives will ever win, and only Labour can lead this country to a better situation.

I remain as opposed as ever to the election of a republican pacifist thus the Tories retain my vote.

I’m hoping your plan isn’t to use these polls to try and track how opinions are changing over the course of the campaign.

I can’t see any other reason for doing one each week though?

If Green party had a chance I'd vote for them. If you haven't already, read their manifesto - it's solid...

However I'll back Jezza

its solid alright.. a few hundred billion a year solid. They make Labour look like penny-pinchers.

I like the green party, and I wish they had 5-10 seats, so that the green-voice is always heard in parliament. But to actually lead the country, their promises are entirely impossible and they know it. Treat them more as aspirations rather than plans, I would.

It doesn't matter how many times they say that we need to do it, or we should do it, if we can't do it than its irrelevant.

If you know the full story, you will definitely vote Tory. All in all, politics in the country are absolutely ****ED; idealists and liars everywhere. However the Conservatives, despite some of their meh attempts at misleading the people are by far the most sensible party in terms of their foreign, fiscal and social policies as well as their promise of delivering Brexit. I am genuinely ****ing sick of anything to do with the EU or Brexit at this point- just get it over with man.

This election is either the Conservatives get a majority, or we have a dog**** coalition with another Brexit and Scottish referendum on the table.

Wow. Another meaningless rant by a ridiculous right-wing Tory ideologist.

Not necessarily. There are constituencies where the main challenger to the Tories is someone other than Labour.
Basically, vote for whoever keeps the Tories out.
